Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at the experimental field of Dau Kalyan Singh College of Agriculture and Research Station, Bhatapara, under Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, IGKV, Raipur (C.G.) during 2018 - 19 in rabi season. The experiment was designed in a randomized block design with a factorial design, with three levels of nitrogen viz., 100 kg N/ha (N1), 150 kg N/ha (N2) and 200 kg N/ha (N3), two levels of phosphorus viz., 100 kg P2O5/ha (P1), 200 kg P2O5/ha (P2) and three levels of potassium viz., 100 kg K2O/ha (K1), 150 kg K2O/ha (K2) and 200 kg K2O/ha (K3). Result revealed that application of nitrogen at 200 kg ha-1 recorded significantly highest plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant, number of flowers per plant, weight of single flower and diameter of flower although maximum plant spread noticed with 150 kg/ha nitrogen. Phosphorus was also important in improving all of these attributes at a higher level. While application of potassium @ 150 kg/ha give maximum improvement in vegetative growth and flowering characters.
